Zach Arfa


I am the Assistant Director and board member of the Hilltown Youth Performing Arts Programs. We are a youth theater organization that works with teens overcoming addiction, trauma, and other mental and behavioral health issues and put on huge, outdoor, immersive performances each year.


I graduated from Oberlin college with a psychology major and a dance minor. This, along with my time at the Williams-Mystic Maritime Studies Program, has given me strong critical thinking, writing, and research skills that are complimented by embodied, experiential perspectives that inform my work.

About Me

“Climate change is not merely one challenge among many… but the all-encompassing stage on which all challenges will be met… a whole sphere which contains in it all of the world’s future problems and all of its possible solutions”

– David Wallace Wells
